The Jumbo Flyer adds nearly 2 times the space for yarn over the already great size regular bobbin, so if you are plying or just spinning singles, you can put more on a Jumbo bobbin. The orifice on the Jumbo Flyer is .7 inches, so you can spin thick yarn or do heavy plys. The ratios are great for low or medium speeds. For some, this will be the flyer for general purpose spinning. Each Jumbo Kit comes includes one jumbo bobbin.
Jumbo Kit on the Sonata – ratios of 5, 7.5, and 10 to 1.
Jumbo Kit on the Prelude – ratios of 5.5, 7, and 9 to 1.
Jumbo Kit on the Interlude – ratios of 5.5, 8.3, and 11 to 1.
